An exciting new mural is planned for the exterior wall at Theatr Gwaun this year! Grant Radford of Accent London, originally from Port Talbort, was chosen by a panel made up of representatives of Theatr Gwaun, Fishguard Town Council, Fishguard Art Society and Ancient Connections. Grant will work with Fishguard’s community and schools to develop a vibrant mural celebrating the stories and ancient connections that link Fishguard and Wexford while reflecting the essence of the town’s identity and the role of Theatr Gwaun as its cultural hub.
The panel were delighted by the response to the open call for artists to create this new mural. Many talented artists with great ideas applied for the commission, making this a competitive and rigorous process. Grant’s proven experience, versatile style and community consultation ideas gave confidence to the panel. We eagerly await to see what appears.
Next steps will be a schools’ and community engagement programme in the Spring and a final design agreed in the Summer. The mural will be completed late summer or early Autumn.
